Show 002- Planning meeting- tomorrow (Tuesday) at 9pm via Skype. Recording Wednesday (2/13) at 8:30pm via Skype (recording starts after everyone has the recorders started.) Show will be released by Monday, 2/18. SPandEvLover has volunteered to host. For this show, we'll talk about FP return times being enforced, have a few food reviews, maybe some film reviews and StrawberryGuy will try to record some audio from the Valentines' Day Stroller Crew meetup (and maybe audio from bowling meetup). 3 co-hosts are still needed and we'll try to keep the show between 35-40 minutes.

I am not sure if I can be on the call tonight but here are my thoughts: I don't think the length of the podcast is a problem, especially since we are going to be on iTunes where most people listen at 1.5 speed and can skip ahead. Even if the news is older by the time the podcast is released, it is still good to cover and talk about in a unique first person way because not everyone keeps up with every aspect of the News - we are not claiming to break news on the podcast, because that happens on MW, but it is ok to cover the news. I would like to hear more conversation and less reading, I think the reading comes across unnatural and the best parts were were you guys were having fun together talking about things that you'd experienced in the Park. I think 3-4 hosts is a good number, and then have different segments where you bring guests in to talk. Most of the ideas about what to talk about can be found in the Lounge, this podcast can be an extension of the conversation and the hot topics that people are talking about. I think the best part of the first podcast was when you guys talked about things that were being discussed in the Lounge, events, the epic pic of the lady on the Fun Wheel, etc. I think once a week is a perfect schedule and it will build momentum. The Skype format is fine for now, we can't do studio quality recordings at this point and Skype makes it so this can be done weekly with less work. It was confusing to figure out who was talking which is why it is good to always refer to each other by name over and over again. This podcast is not geared towards the "stuffy" Disney know-it-alls - they will listen to other podcasts, ours is geared more towards MouseWaiters, and your average Disney fans (a huge demographic), who want to know what's happening at the Park, what to do when they get there, how to use MouseWait, and how to be a part of the community. So don't try to please the 1% - go for our demographic in MW which is 70% women and Disney fans who aren't Disneyland experts. Remember to speak slow, because like I said, when this is on iTunes, people will listen to this at accelerated speeds. It might be better to focus on less topics, so you have more time to elaborate and have fun with them. Remember, the average Disney fan wants to know what to do the next time they go to the Park, what to eat, what attractions will be closed/open, AND they love to hear stories from the Park, descriptions, and live recordings. A lot of people who use MouseWait live all over the world and they love to see and hear about what is happening at the Parks - this is a huge aspect that we need to focus on. Finally, the how to use MW aspect is HUGE, along with community building. Specifically, describing how YOU use MouseWait, is better than reading something and people can relate to YOUR story rather than something you are reading to them. Hope this helps, like I said, you did a great job on episode one and it seems like the Lounge is interested in helping us make it better, thanks! - Admin 1:05PM
Thank you Admin! To go off what he's saying, with segments, maybe we can start trying to find someone to be a guest for next weeks podcast? Maybe sharing their MW story, or their tips for the parks or something :) - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 1:45PM
Yes, you can have special guests interviewed by the hosts. This is the ultimate in user interaction. We can also somehow use a Google Voice number for people to call into and we can play their messages or questions on the air. - Admin  1:53PM
^ that sounds awesome too! - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 1:59PM
I think the more interactive we get, the better! I like the idea of people calling in questions - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 2:07PM
I like the calling in idea! Feels like its a radio show - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 2:46PM
Thanks for everyone who showed up for the meeting! For tomorrow's recording, we have Melissa as the host with Cara and Mike as co-hosts. Mike will be presenting a quick film review on the films nominated for an Oscar and Cara will talk about AP Thursday nights and other stuff. We also have StrawberryGuy recording an interview to be our main feature. The interactive question has been posted in the Lounge and that will determine our Top 10 places to eat in the parks as well as the top dishes voted by MWers (we could go on and on about food). Other than that, we went over what Admin said in his comment above and brainstormed about more ideas for future content (tutorials on how to use the app, different features/lands of the app, etc.) And finally, we narrowed down a list of possible names for the podcast (which Trent has) and will submit those to Admin (but we're favoring LoungeCast). - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 10:49PM
The list of names are: Mousewait All Ears, MouseketEARS, Mousewait Live, All Ears with Mousewait, Mousewait News Hour, Loungecast, or just leaving it Mousewait Podcast. - TheNewTrent  749.0 #235 11:13PM
I really like Loungecast and Mousewait Live. - TheNewTrent  749.0 #235 11:31PM
Thanks for the synopsis. Sorry I missed this week's call! I look forward to hearing the next recording! - EpicDio  460.2 #444 10:29AM
I like LoungeCast, since it's not exactly live. I do like MouseWait Live though anyway. - DarthSkellington  11.7 #9307 6:37PM
If you want to join our Skype conversation, and haven't done so yet, post your Skype username here! - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 10:54PM
it'll work on your mobile phone of choice. Rick was using his tablet when we were recording and Melissa was using her phone. - TheNewTrent  749.0 #235 12:42AM
It should work on your phone. At the last meeting I was driving home and participating in the conversation via Bluetooth. 😊 - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #106 12:55AM
I will try my best to be on this call tonight. My Skype username is diobel21. - EpicDio  460.2 #444 9:01AM
Hopefully I can join tonight. My Skype name is IHEARTSIMBA :) - IHEARTSIMBA50  495.0 #402 5:51PM
Ok, I'll try this. My Skype name is MrsMears11 - MrsMears  217.1 #1716 6:10PM
How will we skype, will someone call me? - MrsMears  217.1 #1716 7:06PM
@Mrs.Mears- I'll add you to the group call once BCC and I get the call started. Just be available on skype by 9pm - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 7:36PM
Make sure you guys add the requested contacts so that you can b added to the conversation - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 9:09PM
we have a script already! it's not finished yet though. shall i email it to you or do you wanna work on the shared google doc with us? - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 10:56PM
edited that part out :) Email is fine- baseballmickey.mousewait[at]gmail.com (or dropbox is fine) - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 10:59PM
Will you be sending out at least a rough draft of the script before the call time tonight? I'd like to take a gander at it - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 11:51AM
question: so since it's going to be posted on Monday, should we just cut out the Meetups that'll be happening this weekend? Since we can't really remind people of the events, since it will be over, but we can't really review them, unless we do that separate and add it in last minute.. If that makes sense - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 11:24PM
Ya, prob cut out metioning meet-ups that would have already happened by the time it airs. Amy ended up changing her date from the 14th to the 12th but there was no way to know that when you recorded it!!! 😩 Oh well!!!!! I guess if you went to any of the meet ups, talk about it or if any of us did, we can post info on it for you to talk about! - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 11:37PM
Yes. We need to remember that it will be released in a future day than recording day, so info like this should be excluded - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 8:37AM
I can do the show this week. I should be free to Skype tonight. I might be able to hit the meetup today if Lennon can't. I'd have to leave by one or two though. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #75 8:16AM
Another question for everyone: How would you guys feel if we organized amongst the co-hosts a schedule for the next few weeks in terms of voices for the Podcast? If you know your schedule, we can determine who can commit to which Podcasts. It also makes it easier for those editing the scripts to know who we can assign which bits to and in turn, speeds the turnaround for the voices to prepare for what they will be speaking about that week? Too much? - EpicDio  460.2 #444 9:03AM
that would be lovely but i don't know how far in advance people know their schedule? - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 9:48AM
I write my own schedule at work, so I can work around pretty much anything with enough notice. However, I'm starting a night class on the 25th - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 11:23AM
During the meeting tonight, we'll make sure to talk about the reactions by others so far and see how we can tweak the show in any way. - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 12:20PM
I can be on the call tonight but a little sick so I'll mostly be on the chat room if OK. - RickChavez  3537.1 #38 8:18PM
It's 9. Is the call still happening? - ScooterMike  1963.0 #75 9:01PM
yes! accept my request to add you and I'll add you to the call - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 9:05PM
IF YOU WANT TO BE ON THE CALL, YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THE CONTACT REQUESTS, OR WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ADD YOU - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 9:08PM
I accepted.. I'm going to wait for someone to call me though.. ? - MrsMears  217.1 #1716 9:12PM
@MM You are added into the call - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 9:15PM
can someone give me a quick summary of the meeting? i wish i could have made it but i was at the parks. although from the looks of things it seems like there were a lot of people. - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 10:33PM
There was a lot of people, enough to I think we maxed out the limit for voice calls on Skype. - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 10:50PM
My tagging isn't working for some reason... But Melanie, Trent, Nicole, or Dio (going off the Google doc): Can one of you please finalize the script and get it sent out to our voices ASAP so that we can prepare and hopefully not sound like we are reading tonight? - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 8:12AM
The interactive question got buried pretty fast (maybe because its that kind of question that is asked a lot, but others don't know what we are doing with the results...). Can a few people periodically bump it every so often? The more responses we get, the better results! - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 9:51AM
Sure! - EpicDio  460.2 #444 10:29AM
Will do! - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 11:35AM
Yes - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 12:52PM
Do you guys think we should actually say WHAT we are doing with these answers? I mean, yeah... We could use the search... But then it wouldn't be a poll/top ten - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 3:30PM
Maybe... People are kind of taking it as just another random question - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 9:55PM
i emailed the script to melissa and since i don't have mike or cara's email it's also posted in the Dropbox. - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 10:00AM
Thanks! Mike: If you want the script emailed to you, just DM me your email address and I'll forward it to you. I'm gonna forward it to Cara right now - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 11:37AM
Sure. My email is mfrankovich@yahoo.com - ScooterMike  1963.0 #75 11:53AM
i was there on the tagging day! M4L to the rescue. - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 1:18PM
@StrawberryGuy Can you please let me know how you end it as well so that we can have a smooth transition in and out of that segment? - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 2:27PM
"back to you in the studio, Melissa." hehe :] - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 2:29PM
"And expect light showers in the evening" Oh wait... Wrong show πŸ˜‚ - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 2:59PM
This sounds like a fun segment SG! Can't wait to hear it. - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #106 3:43PM
So I think it would be a good idea when we are taking about certain topics, to highlight MWers that posted QC about them. I'm going through and looking at the tags and seeing who posted and I'm going to mention their names during our recording tonight. I think it will make everyone feel pretty neat to hear their name and be recognized. You guys did some of that on the first one and I think it was great!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 3:25PM
Yes cara this is a great idea. Good thinking ahead! I am horrible with names and last week I could not remember any when trying to talk about MWers who posted QC. - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #106 3:43PM
StrawberryGuy's interview will be in Dropbox under Episode 002 recordings if you want to listen to it before we record. - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 4:48PM
I just listened to it and its great!! The only thing is there are times when it's really hard to hear Amy talking bc of the background noise, so is there a way to turn that down? We also need to make sure and introduce Strawberryguy before he starts bc he doesn't say who he is and everyone should know who's talking. I think this segment will get more people to the meet ups!!! Nice job twin!!!!!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 6:27PM
I agree, its a great start for our original content. It wasn't the background noise, it was her internet connection. Not sure what kind of devise she was using though, but it can maybe sound like she's on a phone (like some real interviews are) - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 6:36PM
That's a wrap!! We just finished recording!!! I hope it sounds ok!!! 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁 - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 9:43PM
can't wait to listen! :D - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 10:05PM
*Fingers crossed* I didn't know it would be so nerve wracking to be host! πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚ - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 10:07PM
You did awesome!!! It was nerve wrecking but I think it will only get easier...I hope!!! 😰😰😰 - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 10:31PM
I was just listening to Mike's recording and I can only hear him??!!! 😳😳😳😩😩😩😩 - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 10:07PM
that's how it's supposed to record. - nicoleface  1752.6 #88 10:12PM
No, Nicole... I had to go back to my phone because my laptop was echoing (no headset) so I couldn't record. Cara couldn't record. I hope Kevin got e everything 😳 - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 10:15PM
recording came out fine. I can put Cara/Melissa in the left ear and Mike in the right ear - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 10:50PM
and quality wise, wow! what a difference from last week. The audio is really really clear! - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 10:51PM
Oh yay!!! I am glad you can at least hear us well!!! - caramiapoohAKAface  3867.7 #31 11:04PM
I wonder if the quality lessens on Skype when you have more people. - ScooterMike  1963.0 #75 11:15PM
I think so.. Remember the first recording, it helped a lot more when people muted their mics if the y didn't talk. - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #151 12:16AM
That was great. Really worked well with three people - ScooterMike  1963.0 #75 10:42PM
hi! I've been sick all day (almost passed out a couple times today) and this is my first time on my computer all day. With Monday being a holiday, I'll try to get to show out as quickly as possible. - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 6:52PM
If you need any help, let me know. - TheNewTrent  749.0 #235 8:26PM
Get some rest and take it easy - ScooterMike  1963.0 #75 8:37PM
Oh no!!! I hope you feel better... I'm just getting over a pretty nasty cold myself *passes medicine your way* - SPandEvLover  3852.1 #32 10:12PM
I'm always willing to help edit. It's why I came to this land. - DarthSkellington  11.7 #9307 3:58PM
Episode 002 is now available in Dropbox. Feel free to listen to it before it is submitted officially to Admin for iTunes and to download. - BaseballMickey_CM  7199.4 #8 4:28PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of August 31, 2015
Look for light crowds this week until Labor Day weekend begins on Friday. Disneyland and California Adventure will close early for the second week in a row (DL 9pm, DCA 8pm). Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 50s (approx 60% capacity) -- that means it was a very slow week. Even Labor Day last year (which fell on the 1st) averaged in the mid 70s, which is light for a holiday. Now that most schools are back in session, we should see lighter crowds at the Parks until Halloweentime begins! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 31, 2015 9:23PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  495.8 #400 5:39PM
